How to serve it?
Like any other type of Caviar, Good Caviar has a traditional way of serving it: cold and preferably in a non-metallic container.
The presentation is usually made in a glass bowl or bowl, with ice at its base to keep the product cool.
As Caviar producers and marketers, we recommend not using silver or other metal bowls. Its flavor may change due to Caviar’s little oxidation when it comes into contact with certain metals.
The best utensils to serve and take Caviar are glass and mother-of-pearl spoons, although other materials such as wood, bone, or some types of PVC are allowed.
There are vintage books that indicate that the most traditional utensils to serve and taste this delicacy are those made of gold, but this is only for very wealthy people and a bit extravagant.
